Forum: GratefulDead Subject: I'm proud of us, yes I am.

I love all of you recent responses to a certain posters. Good stuff, good wit, no anger. The double post posts are actually funny in the usual pathetic way, and you have all taken them that way. Good, good, good.

The anger is going away at last. The battle is almost over. There is a peace descending over the valley. There is mirth where there was vitriol. It seems the laxatives are working at last. Or the brownies.

Keep up the good work! Remember; Smile and the world smi2les with you!

Have a great day, one and all.

Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: I'm proud of us, yes I am.

Crimson flames tied through my ears
Rollin' high and mighty traps
Pounced with fire on flaming roads
Using ideas as my maps
"We'll meet on edges, soon," said I
Proud 'neath heated brow.
Ah, but I was so much older then,
I'm younger than that now.

Half-wracked prejudice leaped forth
"Rip down all hate," I screamed
Lies that life is black and white
Spoke from my skull. I dreamed
Romantic facts of musketeers
Foundationed deep, somehow.
Ah, but I was so much older then,
I'm younger than that now.

Girls' faces formed the forward path
From phony jealousy
To memorizing politics
Of ancient history
Flung down by corpse evangelists
Unthought of, though, somehow.
Ah, but I was so much older then,
I'm younger than that now.

A self-ordained professor's tongue
Too serious to fool
Spouted out that liberty
Is just equality in school
"Equality," I spoke the word
As if a wedding vow.
Ah, but I was so much older then,
I'm younger than that now.

In a soldier's stance, I aimed my hand
At the mongrel dogs who teach
Fearing not that I'd become my enemy
In the instant that I preach
My pathway led by confusion boats
Mutiny from stern to bow.
Ah, but I was so much older then,
I'm younger than that now.

Yes, my guard stood hard when abstract threats
Too noble to neglect
Deceived me into thinking
I had something to protect
Good and bad, I define these terms
Quite clear, no doubt, somehow.
Ah, but I was so much older then,
I'm younger than that now.

I admit that until reading that I had always just let those lyrics fly by my ears. Thanks for letting me know what I'd been missing. He hasn't been called the poet of a generation for nothing.

...Not at all. In fact I'm probably a bigger Dylan fan than...oops. Let me rephrase, I'm as big a Dylan fan as Jerry was. Point is, that he had his moments of artistic underachievement, usually in a much more public way.

I wasn't really whining about the two of you anyway, Earl, although I'm sure it came off that way. Just playin' around, really. As for Bob, he has had countless moments of sheer brilliance, and from time to time he could also get a bad case of the Subterranean Homesick Blues, which I like just fine, too, by the way. But I do think Bob is way more aware than anybody which ones are real poetry and which ones are jingles. Tell posted one of the real ones.

Yessir and an outstanding version on the Bobfest CD with Neil Young, Clapton and McGuinn singing...even if Clapton flubs his verse.

I was almost ready to let the conversation come to end, but accidentally remembered Sinead O'Connor's unfortunate contribution to Knockin' On Heaven's Door, when she chose to do the Axl Rose thing during the big chorus. That sounded kinda horrible. And that show was right after the Sat Nite Live incident when she tore up the Pope's picture, which resulted in a big round of boos and catcalls during her solo slot. I can't recall what she was doing, but I do remember her being escorted away in tears by Kristofferson. Yikes.

Yup: He also wrote a tune where "fork" rhymed with "clam bar in New York."

Not his finest hour and made painfully clear on the Dylan & The Dead tour.

I'm guessing he's referring to his allusion to randy hippos yesterday. Odd choice of comparison that perhaps offers us a window into the man and his hobbies.

Fuck you.
I'm still pissed, Goddamnit. Dont tell me the vitriol is gone. I wrote the fuckin' book on vitriol, and if I want to still spew hate and ill-will, that's just what I'm gonna do, you dumb jack-ass. Jesus Christ, you over sensitive girly-man, grow some sack and stop wallowing in a pool of your own spineless effluvium. Holy shit, the pansies that continue to preach "love and happiness" can just bite me.

Whew! Glad I got that off my chest. I feel much better now. Sorry you had to hear that folks, rough day at work and I needed to vent somewhere to clear my brain, and you guys were just in the wrong place at the wrong time. Sorry, friend. Please, by all means continue to share your insight, we are all better for it, and I'll do my best to refrain from further outbursts.

Bill – did I pick up from other posts that you’re an aficionado of the Clash? And if that’s so have you heard the legendary Screen on the Green show in 76 when they shared the bill with the Buzzcocks and the Sex Pistols? It’s very raw, very punk and worth a listen for the historical value at least.

The Jamaican World Music Festival show from 82 is good too. This is the one where Joe threatened to bring on the Grateful Dead if the audience didn't shape up.

If have heard OF the first one and would love to find it. The Jamaican gig, where the came on at around 7 a.m. is a great recording of the Clash doing their reggae tinged tunes--and they do them well. I gather the Dead sucked big time--too much fun in the sun. The Clash were the only rock band I listened to in the eighties.
